Goats milk soap is great for the skin and this recipe is one of my favorites because it takes so little time. I've put in a few links to the ingredients so you can get them for yourself. This is perfect project for gift giving as well!
- Goat’s Milk Soap Base
- Silicone Honeycomb Mold or really any other mold will work, including bread pans!
- Manuka Organic Raw Honey (organic is best)
- 4-Cup Pyrex Glass Measuring Cup (or similar)
- Yellow & Red Soap Colorant (optional, I don't use colorants)
I use about 1 lb (or half of the block) of soap base at a time which makes nine of these honeycomb soaps or four large 4-ounce soaps. The block of goat’s milk soap base is soft, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. I slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave. Melt in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave session, to ensure that the soap is completely melted. For 1 lb of soap, I generally microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds.
I package them in tissue paper and keep them in a jar with a lid for myself, but if you want to give them out as gifts, there are so many ways you can package them for gifts, so get creative!
